Install ubuntu 18.04 stalled

In attempting to install the mlnx_ofed for ubuntu 18.04, I got to the following point:

Note: This program will create MLNX_OFED_LINUX TGZ for ubuntu18.04 under /tmp/MLNX_OFED_LINUX-4.6- directory.

See log file /tmp/MLNX_OFED_LINUX-4.6-

Checking if all needed packages are installed…

Removing old packages…

It was stuck on “Removing old packages” for ~2 days without changing. Does anyone know how I can get past this? Or why this is happening?
